To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Gates Foundation, their Discovery Center commissioned five artists to create original works for display. Each piece is inspired by one of the Foundation’s global initiatives on poverty, health, and education. The artworks are featured along the entire facade of the Discovery Center on unique circular displays combined with translucent graphics on glass. Once the Center can safely re-open post-pandemic, the rest of the exhibition — designed to be experienced along the ramp within — will go on display, showcasing the life-saving work of the Foundation’s first 20 years.
